Military expert: the deblockade of Artemovsk will be a rehearsal for the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine before the start of the counteroffensive can conduct a kind of check of the combat readiness of its strike force. This opinion was made by military expert Vladislav Shurygin. According to him, in the next two weeks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will launch a local counterattack on one of the sectors of the front, which will become a rehearsal for a general battle.

Shurygin believes that as a rehearsal, the Ukrainian army will carry out an operation to unblock Artemovsk, which today is in a shrinking horseshoe of encirclement.

The pushback of Russian assault units from the city will be a clear confirmation of the correctness of the new tactics, combat capability and organization of new formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, the turning point in the battle for Bakhmut will also be an excellent PR reason both for the internal Ukrainian agenda, which has become increasingly defeatist in the last two months, and for external curators who expect decisiveness and success from the Armed Forces of Ukraine

- says Vladislav Shurygin.

It should be noted that Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of Wagner PMC, spoke about the possibility of a Ukrainian counterattack in Artemovsk some time ago. He emphasized that in this case, a kind of layer cake will turn out, when Russian attack aircraft blockade the garrison in Artemovsk, and they, in turn, are blocked by Ukrainian units along the outer perimeter of the encirclement.

According to Prigozhin, in order to avoid this, units of the Russian Defense Ministry should cover the flanks and provide artillery support for the Wagner PMC.

    So it will be determined who is more hated by the Moscow Region - Wagner or the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    everything can be. Or maybe it's a game.

    In any case, the result will depend on the combat effectiveness of the RF Armed Forces, and not Wagner. How will the new units show themselves, how stable will they be, how will the General Staff work, what new weapons are prepared for these battles, how ready are the VKS ... the severity of the battles will fall on the ordinary army, Wagner on the scale of the front is only part of the potential

    there will be no deblocking, our troops are holding it in order to make it quieter in other areas ... similar strategies are being implemented on both sides ... the one who is more stubborn and does not fuss will take it!

    It seems that the Russian generals want to take revenge on Wagner for his successes at the front. The Russian regular army itself is obviously not at all capable of waging a modern war, neither strategy, nor weapons, even nothing is heard about the Chechens. It's a shame and disgrace to treat your own safety this way. Maybe appoint Kadyrov Minister of Defense? To bring order to the general staff?
